On Why Orthodox Women cover their heads in Church

1 corinthians 11from 1 Corinthians xi. 1-3

Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2Now I praise you, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. 5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head. For it is the same as though she were shaved.
